Is America Moving Left?

David Dulhade National Organizer Young Democratic Socialists
Kelly Johnston, Chair, Sedgwick County Democratic Party

The WSU YDS chapter appears to be a solid group involved in real world. Their projects have included voter registration, increasing the Kansas minimum wage. I'm sure the program will be of interest to not-so-young-anymore activists as well.

YDS is the youth group of Democratic Socialists of America, the group that was founded and led by Michael Harrington, author of The Other America. Notable DSA members have included United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta, SDS veteran Steve Max, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers President William W. Winpisinger, literary critic Irving Howe, former Congressman Ron Dellums, author Barbara Ehrenreich, United Auto Workers co-founder Victor Reuther, leading African-American Studies professor Cornel West, political columnist Harold Meyerson.
